The AC Library Resource List Builder allows faculty to create lists of Library digital resources from within their Brightspace profile. Students can then access these readings from within the course on Brightspace.
Using the Library Resource List Builder, you can create lists of resources for your course. You can create collections for each week of the course, or create a list of useful readings for an assignment.
How to create a new list
How to change the list name and description
Once you have created a reading list you can add items to it.
How to add Library resources to a resource list
In addition to adding resources from the library to your resource list in Brightspace, using the AC Library Resource List Builder, you can add resources from the web.
How to add web resources
TIP: you can use the ‘Add Web Resources’ function to add Library databases or Subject Guides to your list.
You can add instructions to a reading list in the AC Library Resource List Builder.
How to add instructions
Note: Instructions and resources appear in the list in alphabetical order. To reorder your list so that your instructions appear on top, see Changing the sort order of a resource list.
You can add notes to resources in a list in the Library Resource List Builder.
How to add a note
Resources that have been added to a resource list will appear in alphabetical order. If you want them to appear in a different order, you can change the sort order manually.
To change the sort order of resources
The AC Library Resource List Builder allows you to make your resource lists available for other faculty members to view and import.
Students will only see the Resource List without any search box. You cannot see the student view of the Resource List by previewing your Brightspace course using the “View as Learner” function. You must follow the instructions below.
Note: Remove the Test Student from your course when done, otherwise other instructors using Test Student will be able to see your course as a learner.
